Recipes and Etc.
I have a new page above on the Indian Fire cooking hole. I may move it to its own Blog sometime so I can add more camping and cooking ideas.
Here we are in another week. April seems to be slipping by quite quickly.
Rain is on the way in here for today and most of the week according to the weather people. It will be in the 40's today.
Dave got some of the gravel back up onto the driveway and got it drug on Saturday afternoon. He made himself a drag box and stuck a huge piece of tree in it for weight. He had spent the morning in town opening the Church building for adult co-ed volleyball and then taking everything down and putting it away to do a few errands in town afterwards.
I believe next weekend he is going to break out the chain saw and cut up that huge tree limb from a Mountain Maple that took out a section of our garden fence.No other way to get it out from across it.
I found the calf wandering around the farm truck last week. It was still early morning and I was still in my bath robe. I look out the living room window and there she is on the wrong side of the fence.
I had to bribe her back to where she belongs with a bucket of grain. We am still trying to figure out where she jumped out of her pasture. I thought OH NO we sure don't need this to start.
Here are a couple more recipes from our area in 1958.
